Ducky, Kana, And The Common/comet School's Debut!

Hey all,

I just wanted to stop by and share some new pictures of Kana and Ducky and introduce to you guys my pack of 9 Common/Comet goldies. This is the first time I've ever posted them here on Koko's! :D

Some of them have names, some don't. They were a rescue a while back from a guy on CL. He got them for his turtles as feeders, and when the turts decided they did'nt like them as food-the goldies ate the turtle food and grew and grew. :rolleyes:

So without further ado, here they are. Sorry for the poor picure quality for the Commons/Comets-their aquarium is pretty scratched up!

Hisoka (was once black, but turned gold)

Wow, they all look amazing! I LOVE comets! Just curious, what size tank / tanks do you have for them, since they require more room. Just to get an idea for myself, since I got two single tails :)

Any idea about the gender of the tiny comet, or does it even matter?

Aw, thanks BuggyBear!

When I picked them up, they were in a 55gallon along with 3-4 turtles, and large ones at that. :blink:

The water was so terrible smelling by the time I got home-that turtle water smell, like when they don't get enough w/c's. Now they get my whole 55 to themselves. I've noticed they've grown since I acquired them. And after I move this month, they're going into a nice big pond. :D

Thanks Fang. ;)

They're currently in a 55, because we're in the middle of moving. The home we just bought has a lovely large goldifsh pond that I'll be releasing them into. I'll take a picture of the whole tank with them in it just so you can have a better idea of how much room they have at the moment, being that there's 9 of them! The mini Common is a boy, fortunately all my Commons/Comets are showing their breeding tubercles so I can tell who's a girl and who's a boy!

A pond, how nice! I don't think I'd ever want to keep my two single tails in a pond. Hugo is way too pretty to only be seen when going outside :D She definitely gotta stay inside, and so does her shadow, Orange Fishie. But I want to eventually move them to a 120 gallon tank minimum.

Chiriko would be a nice name for the small common!

Beautiful Goldies :) All of them :) I agree about the pond and not being able to see them like we do in a tank though,But theres a Chinese restaurant that we go to a lot and it has a inside pond with some lovely koi in it that I love to sit near when were there :)

Yeah, but kois are bigger than shubunkins, and we got cats... :glare: But i could replace the bottom of the living room wall with glass and use it as a "window" to the outside pond LOL

Wait, that would REALLY be cool... :whatjust:

:rofl2 Federica! I knew I'd be hearing from you about the turtles...

I can't imagine how all those creatures survived for so long in those conditions, but as well all know, goldies can be increadibly resilient. And when I said the water stank, it was no understatement.

:wub: Aww, really?! I would love for my little Duckles to be having a growth spurt. He has been growing new wen lately...

I can understand where you're comming from. Hugo is definitely too pretty for the pond! He must be admired properly! And a 120 would be a dream. :9

Thanks for the name suggestion, I'm all for Japanese names, as you may already be able to tell... :rolleyes:

I suppose he's officially Chiriko! It sounds cute, and fitting.

I know, I really can't wait to release them. I'll be sure to post pics as soon as I can. :)

Thanks shellbell4ever. ;)

A indoor pond sounds lovely, I know I'd sit by it on every visit if I could; I'd probably spend my dinner time oogling at the fish rather than eating though! :rolleyes:

It's always so great to hear from all you guys!

They all look so healthy and happy! ;)

Goodness how much do I love your fancies?..............LOADS!!!!!! Just look at their cheeks! :heart

Aw, thanks Becs! I know, I adore the wenned varieties mostly because of their chubby cheeks. :D

I LOVE Ducky! Can I have a clone? Congrats on the rescues, they look great.

:P Of course! Let me fix one up for you in the lab! :D

He really is irresistible, isn't he? :wub:

Thanks for the congratulations, they really are some wonderful, lucky goldies.

;heart I looooove them! My faves would have to be Tama and Kana! Very pretty.

Hey there Tay!

Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

I'm glad you like Tama...sometimes I wonder if she will lose her red cap like Kazumi did. :blink:

For now though, it's nice having a red cap and a pure white Comet to enjoy. I think out of the Common/Comet school, Kazumi is my favorite.

Yay I was creative when thinking of a name! W00t! Nothing wrong with Japanese names, as you see one of mine got one as well. :D

And thanks for the compliments for Hugo! She sure appreciates it. Typical woman. LOL

:Congrats: Yup, you're the name winner! :D Thanks again Fang for helping out.

Kana is beautiful. Probably one of the best looking Orandas I've seen. :)

:thanks

I suppose I can't help but agree on that note :rolleyes:

She was left over from a GC auction, I really could'nt believe it. And I was over the moon when I found out I had won her, I though for sure people would be bidding on her because of her unique color patterning.
